Put thermostat back in and bleed air from system like this. Remove cap from overflow tank fill with antifreeze to full mark start vehicle and let idle you will notice the level in tank will start to rise this is normal once thermostat starts to open level in tank will drop add more antifreeze to full mark then put cap back on.

The antifreeze keep bubbling up even before the car warms up. Someone checked it and said my head gasket is cracked.
